School District 833 eyes April 18 as make-up day

School District 833 families may want to rethink any Easter weekend travel plans they’ve made.

South Washington County Schools is tentatively planning to use Friday, April 18, as a make-up day after having to cancel classes last week. April 18 is Good Friday and had been designated as a spring holiday.

Schools were closed Friday, Feb. 21, due to a winter storm. It was the sixth weather-related closure this school year.

Administrators will ask the School Board on March 6 to approve scheduling classes on April 18. The board previously indicated that likely would be the make-up day for a sixth cancellation.
